metallic mica on textured recycled glass

Thank you to all of the students who attended the Recycled Glass Mica Vessel class at Kimball Art Center on March 22!  What a fun afternoon, and the student work is gorgeous!

We started the class by choosing a texture of glass.  Students chose between a frost (gluechip) glass (circa 1980’s, from a medical office building in Murray):

Or a fabric weave glass (circa 1960’s, from a house in the Avenues):

Each student had a mica kit with 4 Interference Colors, which are similar to iridized color on glass, and 4 metallic micas.

After painting their projects, each student chose whether they wanted a bowl or a vase, and whether the texture should be on the inside or the outside.

This class was so fun, I’ll definitely be doing it again, so stay tuned!
